A solution to that nasty Iraq issue

Numerous people have joked about how Saddam Hussein's campaign song, which is apparently getting a lot of airplay in Baghdad these days, is Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You". However, so far no one has seen that this is the key to the whole regime change thing. It's simple, really: Tell the RIAA that Saddam is using a pirated copy of the song, which he's got stored on a peer-to-peer file sharing server, and for which he's paying zero royalties, then sit back and let their lawyers take care of it.

On second thought, an invasion might be the more humane thing to do.
